Hoki10000, Taiheiyo cement

This is hopper for coal, model Hoki10000. In Japan, standard color of freight car is black except container and private car (=owner is not JR Freight) has company trade mark and logo.

This Hoki10000 was manufactured before 1994 (attached photo is in 2002), sponsored by Chichibu cement corporation, so trade mark and logo is Chichibu cement. Such as PANAM and UNITED, trade mark and logo of all cars were not changed immediately.
